A HOLE IN THE HEAD (1959)
Fantastic cast (except for that annoying little kid), talented director, costume design by Edith Head, nice photography...I was really hoping to like this movie, but holy fook that story was horrendous!!! It seemed like every single decision that Sinatra made was bad. How did so many talented people sign up for this hokum?
Negatives aside, I did enjoy watching Edward G. Robinson and Thelma Ritter. The Miami locations were cool too. I was also interested in Carolyn Jones' beatnik character with her blue nail polish, bongos and free spirit. Kinda unique for a mainstream movie from 1959.
